So Obsessed Saturday

So Obsessed Saturday is back!  With just a few days left to the biggest holiday of the year, it's no surprise that this Saturday, I'm completely obsessed with all things Christmas related.  Seriously, I look forward to Christmas year round.  I'm not ashamed to admit that I started listening to Christmas music in the summer.  What can I say?  It's something about This Christmas that just puts you in a jolly mood.

I love Google captured the light animation of our tree star and lights!  The top portion of our tree is probably the only part that look decent.  My kids have been slowly toting all of the ones from the bottom and middle off.  We've had two ornaments break so far.  So, I think after this year we will get rid of the glass balls and go with the sturdier plastic ones.


I can't count how many times we've watched this.  It always cracks me up.  I'm telling you if, you're looking for a good family movie to rent for Christmas Eve or Christmas night, this is it!

Overall, I'm obsessed with Christmas because it's more time to spend with my family.  It's another great holiday to remind us that we have a lot to be thankful

What are you obsessed with this week?

That's right today is my birthday and I'm celebrating!  It's such a huge blessing to have the opportunity to commemorate another year of life.  So, I thought I would share a list of what other things I'm celebrating in addition to today being my Born Day!

28 Things I'm Celebrating Today
1: Family-  This numero uno on my list because I know so many people who don't have family whether by death, separation, etc.  I'm beyond blessed to have a family that loves me and cherishes me as much as I love and cherish them.

2: Creativity-  Needless to say without creativity, I wouldn't be writing this blog post.  I definitely wouldn't be writing my novel.  Being creative has always been my outlet.  My way to let go of stress, blow off steam and more.

3: Life- Oh what a beautiful thing!  To not celebrate having the opportunity to be alive another day is a crime.

4: Books-  I love reading.  It's my to escape and see different parts of the world, explore different dimensions and connect with complete strangers.

5: Food- Food and I have a bit of a love affair.  I'm not ashamed to admit that I enjoy eating to highest.  I also love cooking and being the kitchen, especially with my family.  We laugh, talk and create.

6: Book Title-  I've been working on my novel for some time now.  I was really starting to stress over not having decided on title because without one it just so unofficial.  But I'm happy to report that as of yesterday, I have an official title!

7: Friends- Unlike family, we get to choose our friends and I am blessed to have some great ones!

8: Faith- It's the essences of things unseen, but hoped for.  My faith has seen me through a lot rough times.

9: Love-  We all need it, crave it and want it!

10: Support- It's always nice to have someone in your corner.

11: Music-  I don't play any instruments, but I do enjoy singing along to the radio!

12: Computers-  My laptop died and I started writing the rest of my novel chapters out by hand.  Let me tell you, don't take having a computer for granted.  I'm back in business now, but oh boy do I have a lot of stuff to type up!

13: Social Media-  Sometimes, we give social media a bad wrap when we misuse it.  However, used correctly and you find all kinds of hidden treasures and resources on social media.

14: Happiness- Ain't nobody got time for being sad!

15: Cooking-  It's another way to escape and unwind with my loved ones.

16: Fall TV-  I'm not a huge fan of summertime television shows.  However, when Fall rolls around you catch me glued to television watching shows like The Vampire Diaries.

17: Movies- So many good movies coming out on the big screen that I want to see. They make laugh and they make me cry.

18: Shelter- So grateful to have a roof over my head.  So, many people went to sleep at a homeless shelfter tonight or worst outside in the elements.

19: Sleep-  I've been running low on it these last couple of days, but it's still good.

20: Giving Back- Touching a life is the most amazing feeling in the world.

21: Unexpected Blessings- Nothing like having a wonderful surprise drop in your lap out of the blue.

22: Fashion- Fashion is also another one of my great loves.  I could spend hours flipping through the covers of Vogue Magazine.

23:  Coca-Cola- I must have been born with a Sprite drip in my arm because I love Sprite.  

24: Car- Public transportation doesn't run everywhere.  So, it's nice to have car to able to visit all of those places.

25: Nature- I went to Lake Junaluska once.  Let me tell you, the nature scenes there are breathtaking.  Just something about surrounded by nature that reminds me there is a higher power.

26: Toys- As I get closer to finishing my manuscript, distractions will not be wanted. As a parent, that kind of comes with the territory.  Thank goodness for toys to keep them somewhat occupied though.

27:  Inspiration- When inspiration hits me, I feel like doing a little jig.

28: God- Without Him, we wouldn't be here!

Until Next Time,

So Obsessed Saturday

There's no faster and better way to connect with readers and our favorite writers than social media.  After a LONG hiatus, I have recently decided to hop back in the swing of things on Twitter (@kelizmccoy).  Now, I recently became a new fan of author Sylvia Day.  My baby sister (she's over 18) introduced me to her Crossfire Series this past April.

I felt like I had been living under a rock a little bit not knowing who Sylvia Day was.  In my defense, I am more of an Alex Cross/Twilight/Harry Potter kind of gal.  I tend to thrift toward books that have crime, mystery, suspense and a hint or two of the supernatural.
Anyways, I was browsing Twitter to follow a few of my favorite authors and stumbled across a Twitter account for the one and only Gideon Cross (@GideonCross), one of the main characters from the Crossfire series.

I know people make Twitter accounts for their pets, fan pages and there was even an account for Kimye's fetus.  However, this is something much more than a fan account for Sylvia Day's character.  This in a word is genius!  And if you are a fan of the Crossfire series and don't follow @GideonCross on Twitter, you are missing out on a treat.

The operator behind the Twitter handle for our favorite fictional billionaire has completely brought Gideon Cross to life.  I see how he (or she) interacts with fans and they never break character.  It's truly like Cross has jumped from the pages of Day's books and on my computer and telephone screens.  The best thing about it that @GideonCross seems to enjoy interacting with contemporary romance author, E. L. James (Fifty Shades).

I'm not sure this account is ran by one of Day's official staff members but if it isn't, she needs to hire this person immediately.  To be able to embody a character to this degree takes talent that even some seasoned actors have yet to master.  Yep, considered me obsessed and you will be too!

Until next time,
